The Great Kingdom of Merulla
“Sic Parvis Magna”
|Category: Capitalist Paradise|
Location: The North Pacific
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
The Great Kingdom of Merulla is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King Arthur VII with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, public floggings, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 4.421 billion Merulleans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
The medium-sized, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Poseidonia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 46.4%.
The frighteningly efficient Merullean economy, worth 653 trillion Tridents a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 147,747 Tridents, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 467,712 per year while the poor average 35,609, a ratio of 13.1 to 1.
King Arthur VII is strangely popular with male politicians' wives, government bureaucrats spend six hours per day justifying a six-hour workday, the sanitised and dull music festivals of Merulla are famed for their reasonable volume levels, and where your food came from is an unknowable mystery. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Merulla's national animal is the horse, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Catholicism.
